Simple Login Url: How To Set One For Your WordPress Blog

Steven 8 responses WordPress

Are you bored of typing the url http://yourwebsite.com/wp-login.php every time you want to log into your WordPress blog? You might want to set a very easy to remember url for your login page… Dont’ worry, that’s very easy to do!

To set a very simple login url for your WordPress blog, all you need to do is open the .htaccess file located in the root folder of your WordPress blog and paste the following code at the end of the file:

RewriteRule ^login$ http://yourwebsite.com/wp-login.php [NC,L]

(Don’t forget to replace yourwebsite.com by your own blog domain.)

From this point, you’ll be able to log into your WordPress blog just by visiting http://yourwebsite.com/login.

      Well, it’s not really stealing. I mean, he posted it in plain sight so that we could all use it, technically…

    I thought something like that would take a huge amount of code but seems only a small .htaccess addition can do the magic. Really, typing /wp-login.php can be boring and also be irritating sometimes when you are really in a hurry. Thanks a lot for the post Steven
